Giving a ride to a teenage girl hitchhiking in the middle of nowhere can be a bad idea, especially if they slip into the back seat unseen - because they're a lost and troubled spirit condemned to wander the lonely roads forever. Teenagers like Rachael can be obsessive, angry, and unreasonable, and they'll fall in love in a heartbeat. Being dead doesn't make any difference. Darren and Jean Madden should never have opened the car doors that night when their station wagon mysteriously broke down. Jean has always known her attractive husband would be a hard man to keep. Rachael won't take no for an answer. Even ghosts won't wait forever.

Hague at his Best
In my experience, G.M. Hague writes strange, short horror stories and "The Girl in the Back Seat" is no exception! In fact, this story has been my favorite by Hague so far, especially now that I've gotten used to his narration (which does indeed require getting used to!). A couple heading off on vacation accidentally picks up an unwanted passenger on a dark, side road and ends up terrorized by a lonely spirit. It was fun to listen to and the spookiness met my expectations for this story. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a sort of light horror story that includes some sexual content with ghosts.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
